Normally it is depending on how many issues are collected.  You save the price of about one comic on the 6 issue collections like this one.  List price is $16.99 but they usually sell on ComiXology for between $11.99 and $14.99.  Even at $16.99 you'd save a couple of bucks.

The Batman Vol 3 that I just bought was for $12.99 and it collects BATMAN #16-20, 23-24 and BATMAN ANNUAL #1.

Sold separately those issue's total $25.92.  That's a tad more than 1/2 price.

Oh yeah, that is a good way to save!

Not sure what is "Extended" on the Mister Miracle Preview.  It's just first four pages of issue 1.  You can skip it and just get the real issue 1.

I've always thought about starting Astro City.  Wouldn't know where to begin. Not that have the room for it.   :D

You start with the 6 issue mini, then the 24, or 25 issues after that.

I understand Busiek has continued to write more, but I haven't read past that. ;)

And that was just 6 months ago, too!


Title: Re: Weekly Reader, September 6, 2017
Post by: Perry on September 09, 2017, 03:18:38 PM
You start with the 6 issue mini,

Yeah, and this run is so old ... it is funny how many "...@compuserve" and "Netcom.com" E-mail address there are in these letters pages. Hahaha.
Also, in issue #4's letter page, there is a letter from a guy in Virginia Beach that I know. Not greatly, not a good friend, more of an acquaintance, but I used to see him around in years now past. That felt weird seeing his name like that. I hadn't thought about him in ... well ... years.
 ;D

Also, Jimmy, in issue #4, if you still have access to it ... is that suppose to be
Stan Lee standing beside what is suppose to be Jack Kirby in that "pin-up" of the "Furst Family"?
The Furst Family obviously a play on Marvel's First Family, but in the pin-up, at the very end of Issue #4, the guy standing with the pipe looks more like it could be more Steve Ditko than Stan Lee. I could see it going either way as Stan And Jack "co"-created the FF and Stan did have a pipe for awhile, but could also see Busiek paying homage to both Kirby and Ditko as being the first family of pencilers at Marvel. Opinions?

Love the Star Trek mirror universe.  Reading the Next Gen crew in that universe is kind of fun.  Not a must read but fun if you like that stuff like I do.

LOL

No, sorry, meant to respond. I totally believe that was Stan and Jack there. There's an issue, where, in the first 6, or early in the first 6 of the series where there is a newsreporter and other editors and such, and I'm positive one of them is Julie Schwartz as well. Busiek was great for doing that all over the place.

Actually, I lied, I forgot my Unlimited reading:

Deadpool Corps 5-10 Still not done! 2 more issues!

Bullseye 2 No reservations here from the first issue. Should I be bothered by that?  ??? 8)

Clone Conspiracy Omega You know, you could have just made this the final issue of the mini, or issue 26 of ASM, but whatever what do I know. Just drag out this...blah series...

Doctor Strange 18 Cool use of the magic of the God of Thunder, and the team up in general!!

Spider-man 2099 21 And this series continues on...for a little bit longer...eh...

But I have so much new Image to read!! Not enough time...as I'm trying to read 2 books at the same time...oops!! ;)

I'm right there with you.  I was actually considering not finishing this series as well.  The art in this issue was pretty bad.

Knocking out a few more L44 and started a killer Aftershock comic.

And Jeff, I may need your help with a couple missed issues of L44 if I may. Though I am not sure, yet. It seems I am going to be missing ... not going to be able to read ... 4 issues, I think it was. Instead of me buying those four, maybe you could just let me know what happened in the issues? Maybe?
Yes, I am cheap
 :D

And don't feel like you have to, I can get caught up enough in the recap, which I think ALL monthly comics should be required to have (Thanks Oni and Soule for that)

EDIT - And thanks Jimmy. I thought that as well, but as close as they drew the likeness of Kirby, kinda, I was thinking the other was more Ditko looking, even though it made so much more sense being Lee. But yeah, I am going Lee and Kirby.

I can't remember.  ;D I left it at the LCS.

No biggie, was just maybe gonna ask you for a "what happened after ..."  :D I just don't want to buy a couple random issues of a title. I am sure i can get most of the idea from the recap

Rough day yesterday so I didn't get any more reading in, nor did I get back to the LCS, therefor my completion list remains the same as above.
 :-\
Onto this week.
Will Marvel and/or DC make an appearance on my reading list this week? We shall see
 ;D

EDIT - Forgot both Mister Miracle and Metal #2 will hit the stands today, so I can guarantee DC will at least have two titles on my list this week.
